A gravel pathway with large stone step units leads visitors from the new circular driveway to the inviting deep blue fiberglass pool. The pool is surrounded by a tumbled paver deck that provides ample space for sunning and entertaining. Terraced walls were used to create a site for the pool and patio on this challenging sloped lot. A small outdoor fireplace at the edge of the pool deck serves as the focal point of a small conversation area. A tumbled block grill island with sandstone top was tucked below the existing deck. Here guests can sit at the bar enjoy a cold drink from the fridge and watch the outdoor TV as dinner is served up on the grill. Evening guests here are surrounded by the ambiance provided by the landscape lighting, adding usability to this space at night. Landscape plantings throughout the project provide color and soften the stone surfaces.
